About me

For my clients, I help to identify strengths, protect weakness, and enforce rights, so they can take back control of their case, and their lives.

I’m known as an aggressive litigator who has worked with a broad range of high profile clients, including some of San Diego’s wealthiest residents, famous athletes, and successful business owners. My experience working with large cases benefits my clients by providing valuable insight and knowledge of the law, procedures, professional discretion, tactics, and unique strategies.
